David's birthday was a couple of weeks ago and I could not think of a tangible gift to give - but felt inspired to plan a night away for just the two of us! We did this one other year for his birthday, but I was pregnant with Samuel at the time if that tells you how long ago that was!
I kept it a surprise until the day before and we only went about 15 minutes from home to a neat B&B downtown. We used to go here for our anniversary dinner each year until they stopped serving dinner, but had never stayed there. It was so nice! And, what a treat to relax, enjoy quiet and just be together.
This was our home for the night - spacious and lovely!
Not our room :) but more of the inside of the inn.
We enjoyed being hand in hand, some good food, a movie from the library and yes - a good magazine for me (book for David)
Hooray for a good sleep, a yummy breakfast fixed for us and a lovely morning breeze! We walked to the waterfront next ...
What a wonderful time! We should NOT wait another five years to plan something like this again!
